(p.179) 6 The ICC and Human Rights Enforcement
Displacing Human Rights

Chapter 6 examines the politics of the International Criminal Court’s intervention in northern Uganda. It discusses the Court’s instrumentalization to the Uganda government’s political and military interests and then proceeds to consider the political consequences stemming from the ICC’s administrative dimension, specifically from the discourse of the ICC as an agent of global law enforcement. It argues that ICC intervention can have deleterious effects on the capacity for autonomous political organization and action among civilian victims of violence by promoting their political dependency mediated by international law. It ends with a consideration of the reconfiguration of global justice in emancipatory directions and the place of international law within those projects.
